Please search the forum. On the second page there is at least one topic that should give you a starting point.

BTW - they are data sets not files.

Use JOINKEYS. Add SEQ number in both files and match by SEQ number (you haven't told but I assume you want one to one relationship).

This should be enough guidance.
